Steranko and Masters of the Universe

Jim Steranko from Visual Theory the Steranko Archives Volume 1: "Another 80's premium: MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE. Nestle's Quik offered a large, full color poster of He-Man and company to chocolate drinkers everywhere. Unfortunately, my instructions for reproducing it were ignored and the finished product was so apologetic that even Skeletor denied its existence."  Here is the comp and finished art.

The Drawings of Steranko blog

Besides hosting the Drawings of Steranko website, I now also host this blog. Here is something I recently posted on facebook. Steranko Fantastic Art trading card set: A little known fact in the printing of these cards is that 21 of the cards were rejected by Steranko after they had been printed. These cards were reprinted in much higher quality. However, when the cards were distributed, the inferior cards were mixed into the packs with the reprinted cards. Here is an example of card number 40. The image on the left is the higher quality card. Art © Steranko. ARR
